A cell phone that was stolen from a middle school student during a tour of the Bangor police station was located after the owner of the phone used a tracking app to locate the device, police said.

Two phones and a coat belonging to local students were stolen while officers gave them a tour of the police station on Main Street, Bangor police said in a Wednesday Facebook post.

Police said the items were stolen from the lobby by a woman who went to the station to pick up a summons for a theft that occurred just hours before the incident involving the students.

After the items were reported missing, police checked their video recording system, which allegedly showed the woman taking the items.

One of the victims told police she had installed a tracking app on her phone, which helped police locate the device at a medical facility near Stillwater Avenue.

Police said the phones were in the woman's car, and she was wearing the coat that had been reported stolen.

The post said the woman was placed under arrest, and the stolen items were returned to the students.
